Becoming a Candela Center of Excellence
Anyone who knows me or is a patient can tell you that I’m passionate about lasers. I bought the original IPL machine in Nevada in 1999. And since then I’ve had an array of lasers, lights, and machines in my office. In many instances, I was the first to bring certain modalities to the state. This includes not only the IPL story above, but also, Thermage (years ago), Venus Freeze (which we still use), and InMode Fractora (which we still use). I believe that lasers are one of the best things to have been introduced in the field of dermatology in the last 20 years.
I bought my first Candela laser in 1983. It was a CO2 laser and could basically remove paint from the walls it was so strong. Since then, lasers and light modalities have been tweaked and contained so that they are targeted, safer, and have more versatility than ever. And Candela is one of the laser companies leading this charge.
Besides loving the concept of lasers and what they can do, one of my passions in the last 15 years has been to train other physicians and technicians on the ways to use and maximize lasers. I am proud to say that I’ve trained over 200 physicians and offices from around the country. I’ve done this for a few different companies, but recently joined Candela as one of their Centers of Excellence.
This means my office has most of their devices, and that we can teach other practitioners some of my tried and true secrets. I’m proud that my team and I were selected to join this distinguished group of providers.
